Fishing Reports

Plan your next fishing charter aboard the MV Manutere out of Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, NZ.

Back in business!!!

Back in business after a combined weather and maintenance break.  And some great weather to kick off with.

We headed out to the Astrolabe and had an excellent start with a lot of snapper coming up.   Quite a few undersize, but plenty of good ones amongst them.

We swung off the mark quite a bit but then started getting tarakihi predominately, with a few undersize kingies in the mix.

We reanchored  a couple of times when they slowed down, continuing to do well  as we got back onto them. A great day in all respects.

Saturday was another good one. The weather was cloudy initially, but beautiful by the afternoon. A little bit slower fishing initially, as the current had picked up in the interim, but that eased after the tide change, the fish started feeding harder and we ended up with a similar result  to the Thursday.

So hopefully the bush telegraph is working and we start getting a few more phonecalls

WHAT OUR FANTASTIC CLIENTS SAY

  • Dear Daphne and Brett.

    I wanted to write to you to acknowledge what a great fishing charter you are running on board  the manutere. We have been on numerous  trips with you lately, and always returned home with fish,after having a great day out with Brett. We have found Brett to be very knowledgeable,friendly and always keen for a laugh. we have been on many different charters over the years, and the manutere rates very highly.

    Ironically, I own my own boat, yet love a day out on the manutere. 

    Keep up the great work. Look forward to seeing you next time!

    Kind regards,

    Shane Janssen
     

  • Hi, Brett,

    Just wanted to say, on behalf of the House of Travel Boys , a big thanks to you and your deckie for such a great time.  The boys loved every minute of it, oh, I guess, apart from the few chunderers the first nite.  I know we’ll certainly recommend your charters to others who are interested in a great day out.  The boys got 2 bags of fish each to take home, which was a bonus.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers
